Find Your Place!

FYP doesn't just stand for First Year Players – it's also come to represent the call to "Find Your Place" with our organization! While we come together for our shared love of musical theatre, we remain close as an organization because of the lifelong friendships we make while working on the shows. Our mission is to provide first-years and transfer students with a loving community that introduces them to the college experience. Both current members and alumni proudly stand behind FYP as a place of acceptance and joy within the UVA community. We are always striving to be the best CIO that we can be!

If you want to see our community in action, then check out this video made by Carina Clawson, CLAS '20.

We would love to have you join our family!

"As I enter my final year at UVA, I'm still involved and can't imagine my college experience without the friends I've met and experiences I've had through FYP." – Adam Naidorf
"FYP was the best decision I made at UVA!" – Elizabeth Steimel
"FYP has helped me loosen up in social settings, provided me with the best group of friends I could possibly ask for, and plugged me in to the many arts events happening around Grounds every semester." – Elizabeth Muratore
